Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman today announced $7,500 grant assistance for the Southern Highlands Croquet Club.

Mrs Tuckerman said the money was made available through the 2019 Community Building Partnership Program to assist with the fit out of a recently constructed clubhouse at the Exeter grounds.

“I’m delighted that the NSW Government could assist the Southern Highlands Croquet Club with funding for interior equipment storage and the replacement of a temporary utility shed”

Applications are now open for the 2020 Community Building Partnership Program, unlocking $27.9 million for community infrastructure projects across NSW.

Mrs Tuckerman urged local not-for-profit groups to apply for the funds they need to deliver projects with social, environmental and recreational outcomes.

The Community Building Partnership program has awarded more than $330 million in funding to 15,000 community projects since it commenced in 2009.

Applications are now open and close at 5pm, Friday 12 June 2020. Applicants must read the program guidelines to ensure their club or organisation and proposed project are eligible.
